look at this from an historical view. it's the re-election of a president but throughout the years there have been big gatherings until it was ronald reagan until january of 1981 who put the inaugural festivities. the big view that we're also so farm with. it's a bipartisan of our -- bipartisan of our former government. there's people who clench teeth who don't like the order. >> i will be heading out there tomorrow to do live coverage for kight. and we hope to talk to you tomorrow in washington, d.c. >> reporter: and -- for ktvu. >> and we hope to talk to you tomorrow in washington, d.c. >> reporter: and bring your coat, tori. it might be pretty cold for us. see you in the next couple of days. >> sounds good. thank you. and you can find jamie's blog. and ktvu will have live coverage of the inauguration. kin purchase chet will have live reports starting bright and early sunday morning. >>> palo alto -- most lows have come up -- come up a little bit. it will be sunny, nice, mild. high-pressure system really there's areas of low pressure that are coming in from the south, f
's family, if you want to attack the candidate or the elected official, certainly that's your prerogative but generally family has been considered off limits, and that doesn't add anything to legitimate dialogue that really needs to take place on the issues of public safety and gun regulations. >> although some people are also criticizing president obama for surrounding himself with children, when he held his news conference on his gun control plans yesterday. should children be used in that instance? >> i don't think those children were "used." they were there at an event, they wrote letters to the president. he talked about the letters that they wrote. they're very concerned that something as horrific as newtown, connecticut, or things that happened on the streets in philadelphia, chicago, new york, washington, any city in america, could possibly happen to them, and i thought the president gave them a voice in this conversation. often the adults seem to forget that children care about these issues as well. >> but you know, some might argue that the children didn't actually need to be pr
to be back pedaling. al franken is up for re-election. today he put out statement saying in principle he supports a ban on assault weapons but didn't say he supports legislation to do that. what the fear is i'm told by one top democratic senator an assault weapons ban suggests the president is taking weapons away that plays into republican arguments like marco rubio who said this today on fox. >> there is a second amendment. i didn't write the constitution. i believe in it. if you are going to do anything that impacts it. it better make some sense. here is the problem that i have by the president's own admission, the things that they're putting forward would have done nothing to prevent what happened, for example, in connecticut. >> and that's why top democratic senator is telling me privately he thinks it's much more likely that the president will not get a ban on assault weapons. but, instead, will get something that's less controversial like a national background check, having a system like that. that's more likely to go through, bill. >> bill: ed, thank you. ed henry at the white hou
